1782 Revolutionary War Pay Table Handwritten Connecticut Continental Army Signed For Sale

1782 Revolutionary War Pay Table Handwritten Connecticut Continental Army Signed

You are offerding on a rare Colonial Revolutionary War American printed and handwritten promissory document dated June 1st, 1782!


This document is a Promise of Payment to Charles London of the CT Line of the Continental Army from CT State Treasurer John Lawrence, in order to pay 12 pounds 15 Shillings for service in the War.

Additional signatures include John Lawrence, William Lawrence, R Butler, and John Jeffrey.

Financing the Revolution laid a heavy burden upon each colony, especially those that balked at levying taxes. In order to meet immediate needs, such as wages, the colonies relied upon wealthy revolutionists, foreign loans, and taxes and gifts from abroad. Connecticut issued promissory notes such as this. Issuing paper money was only a temporary solution, and worthless without specie or gold and silver backing. The U.S. would establish its standard monetary system in 1791.Note the beautiful printing around the order, with the words 'For The Payment of the Connecticut Line.' GREAT CT HISTORY!

This sale is for a great early American document on hand laid printed paper. Handcut with varied borders for validity, a bit of edgewear and the hole punch for proof of redemption; in great shape with legible & beautiful handwriting and attractive woodcut printing. Measures 7.5" x 4". As shown. Good luck!
